Powerful new workflow engine turns time-consuming digital asset management tasks into automated workflows
Extensis® today announced Portfolio Workflow Automation, a new solution for Extensis Portfolio™ that turns time-consuming digital asset management (DAM) tasks into automated workflows.
“As DAM has matured as a system for storage and retrieval of digital media, the number of manual, tedious, and repetitive tasks have increased,” said Toby Martin, Vice President of Development and Strategy at Extensis. “With the introduction of Portfolio Workflow Automation, organizations can easily automate these tasks, saving countless hours of manual labor and ensuring consistency and accuracy in business processes.”
At the heart of Portfolio Workflow Automation is Corbit, a powerful and flexible automation engine. Developed and recently launched by Extensis’ partner Laidback Solutions AB, Corbit can automate nearly any type of workflow in DAM or with adjacent systems. Users can easily set up triggers to activate tasks, such as retrieving assets from an FTP server, converting them to another format, saving them in a folder structure, emailing notifications, facilitating approvals, updating assets with metadata, or combining them all into a single process.
Whether working in Portfolio, Extensis’ core digital asset management solution, or using it with other business systems such as Universal Type Server, DAM system administrators can automate a series of tasks with a simple action, or have them triggered by a monitored system change.
Amongst the unlimited ways organizations can automate workflows include the following examples:
